50 frases interesantes de los libros que leí el 2016

No quiero arruinar una tradición que tanto me ha costado construir solo porque este artículo ya está “fuera de tiempo”. Aunque lo terminé de escribir justo en Diciembre, nunca terminé de editarlo con los enlaces a los libros que siempre me suelen pedir. Luego que, como el año pasado me enfoqué en escribir solamente en inglés, todas las frases están en inglés.

Pero me di cuenta que, con el pasar de los años, esta tradición que he construido es algo hermoso, es una pequeña cápsula con las mejores frases que descubrí en el año, es una lista que disfruto compartir pero sobretodo, es una lista de lo que descubrí y aprendí. Por esto mismo quiero publicarla, aunque la mayoría de los que me lee solo habla español y aunque ya no sea el inicio del año.
